I'll back Cockatoo in a little more and suggest only 6 weeks on the injury list

Let’s hope our list stays that small and short term for the rest of the season. Injuries have really cost us the last few years.

Have to feel sorry for the bloke.
He's never had a chance to enjoy one of the greatest treats in footy.
The 3/4 time Orange.
By the time they come out, he's always back in his civvies.

More interestingly, how many games do you think before he breaks down again?
I'll give him 6 weeks out of action at the start of the season, then upon his return he will spend 4/5 weeks in the VFL building his fitness before returning to the seniors on the second half of the season

Alternatively, he'll become the new face of the hit video game, "Where in the World is Carmen Cockatoo" - and we'll have no idea what's happened to him

Scott’s comments on Cockatoo, infuriatingly vague as ever. So many words, so little information.

The club continues to be consistently obdurate (and, yes, quite infuriating) in providing next to no meaningful updates about any injured players at the club.

Having said that, I can actually somewhat understand opaque communication about Cocky's injury status. His history at the club thus far appears to indicate that nobody really has the faintest idea of what it would look like for him to be properly fit and game-ready. And I would include Nakia himself in that assessment.

Which is why his seemingly inevitable rushed return to the seniors once he's 'fit' will be an even greater source of consternation.

Just get him playing week in, week out in the twos (and properly extending himself there) before even beginning to contemplate the possibility of a senior return.

Surely that's the only prudent way forward from here.

Vague is the word - WTF is an "Adductor" ? How can he play when he has a condition no-one has ever heard of :eek:
Seriously though - want him on the field , he could be a serious weapon in the guts with the 666 in place

Adductor = Groin.
Is this a brand new injury,or the reason for his absence in JLT ?
